John Carlton's
Simple Writing System Express Course
Lesson #2 - The Elevator Chat

You made it! Since you’re here for Lesson #2, I’m gonna assume you finished Lesson #1, right?

(If not, march yourself back there and finish Lesson #1 right now. These lessons build on each other. And you’re not doing yourself any favors by leapfrogging around.)

You’re in for a treat with lesson #2 because it’s all about each one of our favorite subjects – OURSELVES.

That’s right. The first lesson was about your prospects. This one is about you.

We’re going to craft the second part of your foundational copy today: Your Elevator Pitch. Now I used to hate these…until I mastered this lesson.

You’ve probably been told you need to explain your business in 30-60 seconds.


But how can you do it in a memorable way that gets your prospect wanting more?

Once again, I’ll hand you over to my trusted mentor, John Carlton, who will teach you the "one-sentence formula" that’s responsible for untold profits.

Easy peasy, right?

Just like last lesson... now, it’s your turn.

1. You've watched the video.

2. Now, fill in the blanks for this simple formula.

3. And, write it out in the comments section below.

4. I'll get back to you with feedback in a jiffy.


Remember, the one-sentence-formula is...

A. We help [group of people]

B. Do/Get [benefit]

C. [better, cheaper, faster or easier]

D. Even if [worst case scenario]

As always, I’m here to give you a boost if you need it.

I’m going to assume you’re good with A (group of people) and B (what problem your business solves)...

But you might get a little hung up on C (how you’re different). Just let me know in the comments and I’ll be at your service.

Warmly,

P.S.  If you haven’t done the exercise from Lesson 1 yet... you really ought to.

John Carlton's Simple Writing System was designed with an internal logic where you go from step 1 to step 2 and so forth.

Skipping steps can really hurt you in your copy training.

I'm serious. Do 'em in order. Go back to Lesson 1 now, and do the exercise.

P.P.S.  When you're finished with this exercise, check your inbox.  An email that will take you to Lesson #3 is waiting for you.

In that lesson you'll learn three tactics (some call them tricks) to get your prospect to take out his credit card.

This is the lesson that gets you paid.  That's the difference between a "business" and a "hobby".  You don't want to miss Lesson #3.

"John's input on my website increased my flow of sales leads by 50%. Also, his advice to trash my sales letter and start fresh (with very specific instructions on how to do it) DOUBLED my sales conversion rate! He was right -- this gets exciting, fast."

30% more business in the last few months!

"What I learned in the Simple Writing System will help me build multiple streams of profits for years to come. I now feel I can truly make more money, create products that sell and attract more clients for my growing business. In fact, I can write my own ads which have brought in 30% more business locally in the last few months. I am so grateful for it. Thank you from my heart."

Million Dollar Confession

Early in my career, I had the good fortune to discover John Carlton -- and he deserves much of the credit for my success as a freelancer. I hereby confess that many of the ideas behind the million-dollar controls I've written can be directly traced to what I learned or stole from John."

Dan KennedyDan KennedyAuthor, No B.S. Marketing Series

"John Carlton is a copywriter I would hire, and there are damn few of those. Further, I would pay to be in a room to learn from him, and there are even fewer people on that list."

Thanks For Giving Me A Better Life

"Since 2005, your simple writing strategies have earned me and my clients millions. It all began when Eben Pagan shoved a copy of your course into my hands and said "Study every word and then write me some copy!" I was hooked, and got my hands on everything you produced.

My career as a copywriter has flourished since then, because you helped me understand the psychology behind a great sales message. In fact, just last month I booked a project that brought me a fat $15,000 (plus 5% of the gross sales in royalties)... and it took me just one week of work.

The beauty of writing sales copy is that it's not the writing that brings in the money... it's the knowledge of what to write about to get people to buy. And there is no one on earth who knows this -- and can teach it so you "get it" quickly -- better than John Carlton. Thanks, John, for giving me a better life."

Robert PierceRobert PiercePresident, Tactical Response Solutions, TRSDirect.com

"John has created millions in profit for us. We pitted his ads and letters against big-city ad agencies, PR firms, and writers with lots of awards... and John slaughtered them all. He consistently hits 'home runs' for us -- 20-to-1 return in profit is not unusual. He has saved our butts on several occasions.

Before going through the SWS Coaching Program, I'd read a bunch of books on copywriting, had some training, and felt like I knew more than 'the basics'.

Like many eager copywriters, I'd get excited about reading a new sales, psychology, or advertising book...

...but when finished, I'd just jump to the next book. The information didn't stick because there was no clear path to apply it.

For these reasons, I was skeptical about what else I could learn from another course.

Within the first couple weeks of class I knew The SWS Coaching Program was sparking a visceral change within me.

Through the daily coaching, feedback, and course materials in SWS I could practice John's system right away, learn what needed to be improved, and continue applying the material until I proved to myself and to my coach that I understood the material.

John somehow infused a deep understanding of salesmanship psychology in me, unlike anything I've ever experienced.

Now, I'm significantly more confident with my copywriting and consulting. (Oddly enough, it's given me more confidence in my personal life too.)

I see why John and his team charge premium prices - the value in coaching someone to fundamentally change their attitude, confidence, and writing abilities is truly priceless, considering the doors it opens in life and business.

Just the other day I sent a proposal off for over $20,000 without batting an eye or second guessing my value. The bottom line is confidence sells and the SWS is the best investment I've made to build the kind of confidence that's real and based on my skills.

P.S. I got the $20,000 job!!
